Sky high: Reality show comes to Clewiston


INI/JOSe zaragoza
Toure stood among the various members of the skydiving team after filming a segment
for his show, "I'll Try Anything rice," which airs on Treasure HD.

TV host films skydiving segment


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON.-- Hendrix, the
first few paragraphs are written.
in a special ink that only you
can read. There's something
important that I need to tell
you.
Hendrix, your father is a ma-
niac.
This is a fact that you simply
have to come to terms with. If
the odd shapes on this page are
familiar to you now, you're old
enough to read, so I thought I'd
share a few things with you.
First thing's first: Toure
(that's your dad) doesn't espe-
cially enjoy driving demolition
derby cars, or trudging through
some unnamed marshes in the
name of wildlife removal.
He doesn't particularly find
it funny to dance around with
his face painted like a rodeo
clown, either; or be the tack-
ling dummy for an all women's
football league -- which doesn't


sound too bad, but he swears
the women were big.
"There was no daintiness.
They were all women, but/
there were very few ladies out
there," he told me.
By my count, he's past the
big 4-0 now; but he was a
sprightly 36 when I joined him.
in Florida.
He was jumping out of an
airplane that day and just a
few seconds earlier the cabling
on the parachute had gotten
caught in his arms. He had a lot
to lose if he lost his head -- cer-
tainly.much more than just his
head -- but he didn't.
And when I asked him what
would motivate him to jump
out of an airplane when the
ground is perfectly suited for
walking, he turned to me after
a half-second of thought, al-
most a flinch, and said he did
it for you.
Like I said before, a com-
plete maniac.


Fewer residents


'born and raised'


Local hospital
stopped delivering
children after 1981

By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Up until near-
ly 30 years ago, a delivery room
was just up the street or just
around the corner for most.
Now, the nearest delivery
room is at least 15 minutes away,
which, for some, seems more


like 15 hours.
"I would have taken her
across the street to have that
baby if I could have," said Derek
Jackson, a resident of Clewiston
who recently had the experience.
"At that point, we were just ready
to get to any delivery room. She
beat me up before we even got
to the hospital."
Mr. Jackson says none of his
kids can say they were 'born and
raised' here in Clewiston.
"Even I wasn't born here,"
See Raised Page 18


End of invisible section.
Toure made a name for
himself as a young writer for
Rolling Stone magazine. He's
written album reviews for the
publication and interviewed
some of the biggest names in
hip-hop, writing feature sto-
ries on Lauryn Hill and Jay-Z,
among others.
His work is grounded in a
strong determination to "ex-
pand the complexity of the
discussion of black people," so
it goes without saying that he
carefully selects his jobs.-
When he was approached
to do a show titled "I'll Try Any-
thing Once" on Treasure HD,
he may have met it with some
reservation; until the producers
described it as an intellectual-
ized version of Jackass -- the in-
describable stunt and gag show
on MTV.
He raised an eyebrow and

Recycling



sites named


Clewiston boasts
many locations
By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -With the lat-
est wave of "green" trends, and
mounting .concerns regarding
the ozone layer, it's no won-
der why residents in Hendry
County are becoming increas-
ingly concerned with recycling
matters.
Compounding the matter is
the fact that some people do
not know if a local recycling
center exists.
"There, are several public
access bins in Clewiston," said
Patty Ashley of the recycling
center administration building.
Though Ms. Ashley admits
there is no set schedule for
pick-up, she wants to ensure
members of the community
that recycling in Hendry County
is certainly welcomed.
One person expressed con-
cern that she did not know
when to take her recyclables
for collection: She has made
attempts to drop off materials,
but the bins have been miss-
ing at some points during the
week.
Juan Gaure is the supervi-
sor of the recycling center site
in LaBelle and has the explana-
tion.
"When the bins get full we
take them and empty them
here, on site, and then we re-
turn them to the proper loca-
tion," he said.
He continues.
"It is difficult to make a
schedule for pick up since [we]
never know how often people
will drop off their articles. We
are used to it so we generally
just know about when to go
back."


It appears as though many
people look for individual bins,
similar to the way they are
found in Palm Beach County..
"It would be more conve-
nient, of course, to have per-
sonal bins for each household,"
a local resident added. "But if a
person is going to recycle, then
they are going to recycle," he
said.
But Hendry County has large
green bins marked with yellow
recycling stickers that contain
the phone numbers of the re-
cycling centers and designate
the items' to be recycled in that
particular bin.
These are the locations and
deslgriduiors: "

Did You Know?


By Dale Conyers
Peel a banana from the bot-
tom and you won't have to pick
the little "stringy things" off of it.
That's how the primates do it.
Take your bananas apart when
you get home from the store. If
you leave them connected at the
stem, they ripen faster.
Store your opened chunks of
cheese in aluminum foil. It will
stay fresh much longer and not
mold!
SPeppers with 3 bumps on the
bottom are sweeter and better for
eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on
the bottom are firmer and better
for cooking.
Add a teaspoon of water when
frying ground beef. It will help
pull the grease away from the
meat while cooking.
To really make scrambled eggs
or omelets rich add a couple of
spoonfuls of sour cream, cream
cheese, or heavy cream in and
then beat them up.
For a cool brownie treat, make
brownies as directed. Melt Andes
mints in < B R>double boiler and
pour over warm brownies. Let set
for a wonderful minty frosting.
SAdd garlic immediately to a
recipe if you want a light taste of
garlic and at the end of the recipe
if your want a stronger taste of
garlic.
SLeftover snickers bars from
Halloween make a delicious des-
sert. Simple chop them up with
the food chopper. Peel, core and
slice a few apples. Place them
in a baking dish and sprinkle the
chopped candy bars over the
apples. Bake at 350 for 15 min-
utes!!! Serve alone or with vanilla
ice cream.


1. Reheat Pizza
Heat up leftover pizza in a non-
stick skillet on top of the stove,
set heat to med-low and heat till
warm. This keeps the crust crispy.
No soggy micro pizza. I saw this
on the cooking channel and it re-
ally works.
2. Easy Deviled Eggs
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip
lock bag. Seal, mash till they are
all broken up. Add remainder of
ingredients, reseal, keep mash-
ing it up mixing thoroughly cut
the tip of the baggy, squeeze mix-
tureinto egg. Just throw bag away
when done easy clean up.
3. Expanding Frosting
When you buy a container of
cake frosting from the store, whip
it with your mixer for a few min-
utes. You can double it in size.
You get to frost more cake/cup-
cakes with the same amount. You
also eat less sugar and calories
per serving.
S4. Re-heating refrigerated
bread
To warm biscuits, pancakes,
or muffins that were refrigerated,
place them in a microwave with a
cup of water. The increased mois-
ture will keep the food moist and
help it reheat faster.
5. Newspaper weeds away
Start putting in your plants,
work the nutrients in your soil.
Wet newspapers put layers
around the plants overlapping as-
you go cover with
mulch and forget about weeds.
Weeds will get through some gar-
dening plastic they will not get
through wet newspapers.
6. Broken Glass
Use a wet cotton ball or Q-t
ip to pick up the small shards of


DURA STORAGE


glass you can't see easily. '
7. No More Mosquitoes
Place a dryer sheet in your
pocket. It will keep the mosqui-
toes away.
8. Squirrel Away!
To keep squirrels from eating
your plants sprinkle your plants
with cayenne pepper. The cay-
enne pepper doesn't hurt the
plant and the squirrels won't
come near it.
9. Flexible vacuum
To get something out of a heat
register or under the fridge add an
empty paper towel roll or empty
gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It
can be bent or flattened to get in
narrow openings.
10. Reducing Static Cling
Pin a small safety pin to the
seam of your slip and you will not
,have a clingy skirt or dress. Same
thing works with slacks that cling
when wearing panty hose. Place
pin in seam of slacks and -- ta da!
-- static is gone.
11. Measuring Cups
Before you pour sticky sub-
stances into a measuring cup, fill
with hot water. Dump out the hot


water, but don't dry cup. Next,
add your ingredient, such as pea-
nut butter, and watch how easily
it comes right out.
12. Foggy Windshield?
Hate foggy windshields? Buy a
chalkboard eraser and keep it in
the glove box of your car. When
the windows fog, rub with the
eraser! Works better than a cloth!
13. Reopening envelope
If you seal an envelope and
then realize you forgot to include
something inside, just place your
sealed envelope in the freezer for
an hour or two. Viola! It unseals
easily.
14. Conditioner
Use your hair conditioner to
shave your legs. It's a lot cheap-
er than shaving cream and
leaves your legs really smooth.
It's also a great way to use up
the conditioner you bought but
didn't like when you tried it in
your hair...
15. Goodbye Fruit Flies
To get rid of pesky fruit flies,
take a small glass fill it 1/2" with
Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops
of dish washing liquid, mix well.


You will find those flies drawn to
the cup and gone forever!
16. Get Rid of Ants
Put small piles of cornmeal
where you see ants. They eat it,
take it "home," can't digest it so
it kills them. It may take a week
or so, especially if it rains, but
it works & you don't'have the
worry about pets or small chil-
dren being harmed!
17. Infor about clothes
dryers
The heating unit went out on
my dryer! The gentleman that
fixes things around the house
for us told us that he wanted to
show us something and I really
tried this and did it. Mine did as
it says he went over to the dryer
and pulled out the lint filter. It
was clean. (I always clean the
lint from the filter after every
load clothes.) He told us that he
wanted to show us something;
he took the filter over to the
sink, ran hot water over it. The
lint filter is made of a mesh ma-
terial I'm sure you know what
your dryer's lint filter looks like.
well,...the hot water just sat on


top of the mesh! It didn't go
through
it at all! He told us that dryer
sheets cause a film over that
mesh that's what burns out the
heating unit. You can't SEE the
film, but it's there. It's what is in
the dryer sheets to make your
clothes soft and static free -- that
nice fragrance too, you know
how they can feel waxy
when you take them out of
the box, well this stuff builds up
on your clothes and on your lint
screen. This is also what causes
dryer units to catch fire & po-
tentially burn your house down
with it! He said the best way to
keep your dryer working for a
very long time (& to keep your
electric bill lower) is to take
that filter out & wash it with
hotsoapy water & an old tooth-
brush (or other brush) at least
every six months. He said that
makes the life of the dryer at
least twice as long! How about
that!?! Learn something new ev-
eryday! I certainly didn't know
dryer sheets would do that. So, I
thought I'd share!


It's community, It's banking.


It's a celebration.

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of
what happens in our community IS good.)

How are we doing?

Increasing your visibility through marketing


Last week we left off talking
about increasing your visibility
through creative marketing that
may not involve advertising on
TV, radio, or in a magazine. While
I am not going to go through all
the. methods, after all I want you
to make appointments with me
for some free counseling- but I
can toss out a couple of ideas.
Obviously there are the booths
you can get at a festival that pro-
motes your business and allows
you to hand out flyers, coupons,
free gifts for the kids. You may not
want to stand outside all day, but
I am telling you folks, where else
can you reach potentially thou-
sands of people with only $100 as
your expense for a registration? .
In small towns there are always
opportunities to create some-
thing for someone to do since
one of the biggest complaints is
a lack of fun family activities. The
Christmas event that was put on
a couple of years ago by among

FAS helps Florida agriculture and all Floridians

IFAS helps Florida agricultre and all Floridians


By John Hoblick
President of Florida
Farm Bureau Federation
What is the future of Florida's
,agriculture industry?
, I am often asked questions very
similar to this and I have given it a
,great deal of thought.
As president of the state's only
general agriculture organization
'representing 143,000 member
families, I can say I see a bright fu-
fure for Florida.
SA year ago I was tapped to
serve as chair of a group of CEOs
-and directors of agricultural asso-
ciations and corporations seeking
a shared industry-wide vision. The
tFuture of Agriculture task force
'developed the vision that agricul-
iture will remain a pillar of Florida's
,economy. The leaders who serve
'on the task force see agriculture
'remaining an important economic


force into the 21st Century and,
We want to share that vision with
Gov. Charlie Crist, legislators, and
Bernie Machen, president of the
University of Florida.
Agriculture's bright future
doesn't come without challenges.
Many of these challenges will re-
quire collaboration.
Which brings me to the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agriculture Sciences (UF/
IFAS) and the threat of substantial
budget cuts during this year's leg-
islative session.
We all understand that the state
is facing a record revenue short-
fall that will require budget cuts,
across the board. Specific figures
are not yet available, but most
certainly UF/IFAS will face cuts; so
will every other program funded
by the Florida Legislature.
My concern is that programs
related to agriculture not be cut


disproportionately relative to other
programs, and Farm Bureau con-
tinues to work to make it clear to
legislators and administrators that
disproportionate cuts could dimin-
ish the viability of the agriculture
industry, which remains Florida's
second-largest economic contrib-
utor.
The research and Cooperative
Extension Service components are
major resources that benefit not
only Florida agricultural producers
but every Floridian. With a unique
climate and over 280 agricultural
commodities produced in Florida,
UF/IFAS provides needed research
and development for this industry.
For the vast majority of these com-
modities no other university or col-
lege is doing the needed research.
Florida's unique climate creates
distinct and separate research and
technology transfer needs.
As the crops have changed, the


university's services to the industry
have adjusted accordingly. Within
the last five years,-a great deal of
university research has dealt with
the protection of natural resourc-
es. Because farmers and ranch-
ers contribute significantly to the
stewardship of the state's land,
wildlife and natural resources, the
university is assisting them with
this mission. Agriculturalists are
pioneers in proper land use and
their enterprises interface with our
natural resources. They should be
congratulated for centuries of de-
votion to the cultivation of food
and the protection of the land
upon which we all depend.
I am concerned about the
potential for draconian budget
cuts. Extension benefits both the
general public (urban and rural)
and the agricultural community.
The services IFAS provides simply
aren't being provided by any other


entity.
Historically, UF/IFAS has had
Extension Offices in each of Flor-
ida's sixty-seven counties. Sixteen
Research and Education Centers
(RECs), Research and Demonstra-
tion
Sites (RDSs) and several other
offices are located throughout the
state.
With a renewed public inter-
est in "green" or sustainable liv-
ing, IFAS is in a unique position to
provide reliable information in this
area.
Soultiodsforyourlife.com is
perhaps the best way to sum up
what IFAS/Extension does for ev-
eryone in Florida. This website is a
gateway to all of that expertise and
makes it easy for the public to get
the information they need, at any
time. Topics include lawn and gar-
den care, family life and consumer
choices, agriculture, community

is focused on providing timely and
relevant solutions for improving
Floridian's lives.
Floridians must realize how
important IFAS is; not only to ag-
riculture, but to the many niches
it fills for all of us. I encourage ev-
eryone to contact their legislators,
members of the board of trustees
and President Machen to let them
know how much we all value
IFAS's contributions to the public
good.

Questions that can't be answered: better off without


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
I keep hearing the word "re-
cession" and listening to com-
mentators talk about it. Some say
"We're bordering on recession",
others will tell us "No, we're just
having a downturn but it's not a
recession", others say "We're in
a recession and things are going
to get worse", still others believe
"This is just a cycle" and pre-
dict the dates when they think the
housing market will be restored
and all will be back to "normal"
once more. I can look around
and see the price of gas rising,
the boxes in the stores getting
smaller, hear about the rise in the
number of foreclosures, listen
to reports about layoffs and job


cuts, and say "Aha, we're in a...."
and then wonder what would
be the best word to accurately
describe it all. In fact, I don't re-
member a recent period when
I wouldn't have liked lower gas
prices, wouldn't have liked more
for my money, not hearing about
somebody being out of work, or
something bad happening some-
where.
When I call what is going on
a "recession", I'm saying, "The
glass is half-empty" rather than
half-full. What the truth of the
matter is "The glass is at the fifty
percent level." Then what is go-
ing on doesn't have some of the
particularly negative meanings
which may, or may not, exist in
my life. People look around and
connect lots of dots when may-
be, just maybe, a true picture
rests in looking at where we find


ourselves today. I can see a pes-
simism coming when someone
*says, "recession" and then I look
inward.
Giving a name to it all that
carries other connotations won't
help. I worked in an office once
where we had an employee who
didn't work out; there came
the day for letting him know he
was no longer needed. When
the difficult moment came, he
asked, "Am 1 being fired or just
terminated?" We told him he
was "terminated" and it seemed
to cushion the blow for him;
even if amounted to the same
thing. I meet people that tell me
they're "depressed" and wonder
if it might be better to talk about
being "sad" or "down in the
dumps" or "unhappy."
The word, "Depressed" has
a lot of meanings that go with


it, suggesting something much
more serious and requiring in-
terventions or special treatment
when this might not be the case
at all. There are certainly times
when labels and descriptors are
useful but their use must be tem-
pered with the baggage they carry
with them. There is a Biblical ac-
count of laborers in the vineyard
(Matthew 20:1ff). Some work all
day, some work a half-day, some
work only an hour. Everything
is going well until they find out
they're all paid the same.
On hearing about being paid
for what they did instead of by
the hour, the ones who worked
longer felt entitled to more. The
lesson tells us, "Now when the


first came, they thought they
would receive more but each of
them received a denarius. And
on receiving it, they grumbled
at the owner saying..'you have
made them equal to us who have
borne the burden of the day and
the scorching heat'(vss 11-12)."
We learn about how jealousy
makes people unhappy, how
perceived injustices cause jeal-
ousy and anger, how labels don't
really help. In the parable, each
got what he agreed was worth
his hire. It doesn't do anybody
any good to compare airline
ticket prices with the passenger
next to you as you're'flying from
point A to point B; I like to think I
made the best deal I could when


I bought the ticket and let it go at
that. Are we in a "recession?" I
don't know, but then I'm in good
company because the supposed
experts can't agree either. What
I do know is that i may have to
make some adjustments. I'm
not convinced thatanswering the
question will help. I'm happy to
let it be.It's OK not to know. We
may be better off for it. By the
way, when it comes to matters
of faith, we don't always "know"
either; we're still better off hav-
ing faith, too. Living without
trying to pin everything down;
we really do it all of the time. It
can lead to happiness, content-
ment, and a whole host of good
things.

Embracing a greater reality


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Everett Alvarez Jr. was the
first American pilot shot down
over North Vietnam on August
5, 1964. He spent eight years and
seven months in brutal captivity
in North Vietnam, making him
the second longest held POW in
American history. The first year
and a half Alvarez spent in solitary
confinement.
Alvarez was repeatedly beaten
and tortured, but one of his dark-
est hours came after seven years
in prison. On Christmas Day 1971,
his captors let him read a letter
from his mother that said his wife
had left him. In reflection, Mr. Al-
varez said, "The hardest part was
being alone. I used to do a lot of
talking. I talked to God, and I re-
alized I wasn't really alone." He
scratched a cross outside his hut.
Mr. Alvarez prayed often.
When Mr. Alvarez was finally
released, he emerged from captiv-
ity with a new spirit. He remarried
soon after his release in February
1973. He earned a law degree in
night school. He held two senior
political posts in the Reagan ad-
ministration. In 1988, he started
Conwal Inc., the executive man-
agement consulting -firm that em-
ploys more than 200 people and
,pulls in more' than $15 million


a year. There is a story about a
White House reception he attend-
ed upon his release. John Wayne
was introduced to him and broke
down telling him "I only play a
hero, you are a hero".
Captain Floyd J. Thomps6n
was in an observation plane that
was downed by small arms fire on
March 26, 1964. Captain Thomp-
son survived the crash, suffering
burns, a bullet wound across the
cheek and a broken back, and
was quickly captured by the Viet
Cong. Captain Thompson spent
the next nine years as a prisoner
of war, becoming the longest held
POW in American history. During
his captivity, he was tortured and
starved, and suffered the mental
anguish of being isolated from
other POWs for half his imprison-
ment.
The years following his home-
coming in March 1973 were far
from happy. Captain Thompson's
marriage had been troubled even
before his captivity. He and his
wife divorced in 1975. He later
remarried, but divorced soon af-
terwards. Floyd Thompson was
never able to form any kind of
a relationship with his four chil-
dren. Ironically, Captain. Thomp-
son said that one of the things that
helped him cope with his brutal
imprisonment was thinking of the
fine family that awaited his return
and the dreams of what his life'


would be like upon his return to
America. He developed a very se-
rious drinking problem and was
in several military hospitals for
treatment. In 1981, while still on
active duty, Thompson suffered a
massive heart attack and a severe
stroke that left him disabled for
the rest of his life.
He was found dead in his Key
West By the Sea Condominium
on July 16, 2002 at the age of
69. His body was cremated and
his ashes scattered at sea off the
coast of Florida.
Two men. Two similar circum-
stances. Two different outcomes.
It's amazing the difference faith in
God can make.
Christian faith does not deny
the problems and challenges of
life. It does not turn away from
reality, but it understands that
beyond the realities of this world,
a greater reality exists. And that
gives us strength to persevere.
The Apostle Paul states it this
way in Philippians 4:12-13: "I
know what it is to be in need, and
I know what t is to have plenty. I
have learned the secret of being
content in any and every situa-
tion, whether well fed or hun-
gry, whether living in plenty or in
want. I can do everything through
Him who gives me strength."

SI HENDRY REGIONAL
MEDICAL CENTER
-.,. ... .teEr KEEPING IT CLOSE TO HOME

No one wishes to be a candidate for surgery, but if it becomes necessary for you to have an
operation, Hendry Regional Medical Center is the place to be. Dr. Leonard Carroll is a board-
certified general surgeon who arrived in February of 2007. He now performs over a hundred
surgeries a month at HRMC.

During high school when young Leonard was making decisions about his career path, his father
offered him two choices he could become either a minister or a doctor. Leonard chose the
medical field. He finished high school at the age of 17 and completed college two years later,
doubling-up on his college semester courses and credits and going through summer sessions. At
the age of 19, Leonard Carroll was a 'straight A' medical student. He graduated in 1967 from
the University of Tennessee Medical College. He completed his internship and his residency at the
Baroness Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Before coming to Clewiston, he and his wife lived in
Jamestown, Tennessee, where he was a General Surgeon 'r^
for 18 years. He arid his wife, Cindy, are very familiar with -, -
rural communities. As a comparison in population statistics
in 2000, Jamestown was a mere 1,839 to then Clewiston's
6,460. The Carrolls have become actively involved in "6 __.
church, civic organizations and social events and have
purchased a home in Clewiston.

Although word is getting out about this experienced and .
personable surgeon, many in the community are still unaware that they may have surgery, right
here at home. Dr. Carroll performs various types of surgical procedures among them are
laparoscopic and endoscopy surgeries.

Laparoscopic surgery, often called band-aid surgery, is a
modern technique in which operations in the abdomen are
performed through small incisions, as compared to the
traditional larger incisions. Of these types of procedures,
SDr. Carroll performs laparoscopic removal of the gall
bladder and appendix, plus hernia repairs, vasectomies
and tubal ligations. He also does circumcisions,
S. hemorrhoid surgeries and many gynecological procedures
such as ovarian cysts, hysterectomies and others. In
J addition, Dr. Carroll performs endoscopic operations.
idoscopy means "looking inside" and typically refers to
I oking inside the human body for medical reasons, using
an instrument called an endoscope. These types of
surgeries include gastroscopy, bronchoscopy and
colonoscopy, which can all be performed right here at
HRMC.

Dr. Carroll has always had high work ethics, and it's not
unusual for him to put in over a hundred hours of work per
week. His patients become personal to him on more than just a professional level he prays for
his patients before their surgical procedures.

Just because you or a family member need surgery doesn't mean you have to leave town for the
procedure. At Hendry Regional Medical Center, you'll have access to a broad array of
sophisticated surgical services in both in-patient and out-patient settings. Schedule your surgery
near home. Call Dr. Leonard Carroll's office for an appointment at 863-983-5026. (View the
Hendry Regional Medical Center website at www.hendryregional.org for additional information
regarding the hospital and its
services.)

The Bible on the


torture rack


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
II PETER 3:16 is very graphic
in its picture of those who would
abuse the Scriptures, trying to
make them say something that
they don't. Peter had been writ-
ing about false teachers and
those who belittle the teaching
of the Second Coming of Christ
(Chapters 2 & 3). In rebuttal, he
continued "The Lord is not slack
concerning His promise (of the
Second Coming), as some men
count slackness, but is longsuf-
fering to us-ward, not willing
that any should perish, but that
all should come to repentance"
(3:9). They should be alert, look-
ing to that day of the Second
+ Coming of Christ and the de-
struction of the world, in godly
living. Then Peter admonished,
"Wherefore, beloved, seeing
that ye look for such things, be
diligent that ye may be found
of Him in peace, without spot,
and blameless. And account that
the longsuffering of our Lord is
salvation; even as our beloved
brother Paul also according to
the wisdom given unto him hath
written unto you. As also in all
his epistles, speaking in them of
these things; in which are sore
things hard to be understood,
which they that are unlearned
and unstable wrest. as they do
also the other Scriptures, unto
their own destruction." (II Peter
3:14-16).
Peter classified Paul's writ-
ings with other Scriptures as
the Word of God. In them some
things were harder than others to
be understood, and there were
those who would WREST them,
along with other Scriptures, to
"their own destruction." This
word "wrest" is highly interest-
ing. It basically means to torture,
put on the rack. The noun from
which it comes has reference
to "an instrument for turning or
winding, a windlass, rooler...a
screw press..a rack or instru-
ment of torture."
There are those foolish
enough to treat God's Word as
if it were some poor soul placed
upon the torture rack, trying to


make it say something that it
does not say (or mean). With
the turning of the rollers, the
rack, the screws, the victim's
joints and limbs were dislocated
or crushed. Some people are this
reckless with the Word of God.
First the difficult things are
chosen for torture because the
easier ones cannot as readily be
forced and twisted. The immedi-
ate context is the Second Com-
ing of Christ. Today Scripture like
the book of Revelation is often
found upon the torture rack. Ob-
scure language is used to try to
prove way-out theories (which
have become dogmas). In the
torturous process the rest of the
Bible, although in plain everyday
language, suffers also. And dif-
ficult Scriptures are not the only
ones that fall victim to the torture
rack.
Such simple references as Acts
2:38 "Repent and be baptized
everyone of you in the name of
Jesus Christ, fbr the remission
of sins, and ye shall receive the
gift of the Holy Spirit.", is twisted
and disjointed by those who re-
fuse to accept what it says.
Matthew 19:9 is very plain,
but the torture rack is brought
out by those trying to make it
say more than is' there. People
hertofore had not a problem
with this Scripture. But preach-
ers today, like Balaam, go back
hoping the Lord will have more
to say. Let us not attempt to be
wiser than that which is written.
Let us respect the silence of the
Scriptures.
Peter says the end result is
that they who use the torture
rack will twist the Scriptures to
their own destruction. Remem-
ber the warning that is found
in Revelation 22:18-19 about
adding or taking away from this
book of prophecy. The apostle
Paul said it was an awful thing to
pervert the gospel of Jesus Christ
(Galatians 1:6-10). Let us honor
and respect the Word of God.


First Christian opens
recycling program
First Christian Church, 210
N. Francisco Street, has begun
a recycling program to benefit
their Building Fund. They are
collecting empty laser and inkjet
cartridges and used cell phones
from the community and ship-
ping the waste products to a

funding the church and its sup-
porters are helping to protect
the environment by keeping
toxic inks, toner, etc, out of our
landfills. If you have items for re-
cycling you may call the parson-
age (863) 983-1804 for pick up or
you may bring the items to the
church during service hours or
to the parsonage at 730 E. Con-

Florida father memorializes Religious News in Brief

Florida father memorializes Religious News in Brief


soldier son on motorcycle


By Tish Butts
Army Reserve Medical Command
Public Affairs
CLEARWATER -*- A father
adorned a 1977 Harley Davidson
Sportster with his son's uniform
at the Bike Builders Invitational in
Clearwater, Fla., as a memorial.
That son, Sgt. -Michael Rowe
of New Port Richey, Fla. and the
46th Engineer Battalion, Warrior
Brigade in Fort Polk, La. died in
2006 while on convoy in Rutbah,
Iraq. His father, David, attached
the desert combat uniform (DCU)
to the bike as a dedication to his
memory.
"It was always my intention for
Mike to inherit it (the bike)," said
David. "It was, I guess, spiritual
when I thought, 'Well, he can't
inherit it, but I can make a memo-
rial of it.'"
Along with the fabric of the
DCU, his name and rank lay across
the front fender. The American
flag sits on the right side of the gas
tank while his unit patch and Sap-
per Tab appear on the left.
According to Mr. Rowe's par-
ents, he is one of the few in his
military occupational specialty,
Petroleum Supply Specialist (92F),
to complete the Sapper Leader
Course.
Mr. Rowe's 12 ribbons includ-
ing the Purple Heart, Bronze Star
and Meritorious Service medals
are attached to the bike on the
oil reservoir. His Combat Action
Badge and Expert Marksmanship
Badge are located above and be-
low his ribbons.
David Rowe said he decided
to create the memorial about six
months after his son died while
supporting Operation Iraqi Free-
dom.
Despite the cear-coating of the


uniform and molding the bike's
fender to fit the newly fashioned
material, David Rowe was able to
maintain the integrity of the uni-
form. "I didn't cut the fabric only
the thread," he said through tear-
glazed eyes.
"A lot of love went into that
bike," Marcy Rowe, Micheal
Rowe's mother, echoed as she
stared into the distance.
Mr. Rowe deployed to Iraq in
November 2005 and died from a
tripped mortar, which was hidden
in a drainage ditch, the following
year on March 28 the day before
his 24th birthday.
The gunner traveling with Mi-
chael Rowe saw what appeared
to be fishing line, which was used
to set off the individual explosive
device (IED), laid across the road
approximately four seconds be-
fore the blast.
His team received a briefing
about that particular IED for the
first time that morning, and Mr.
Rowe was the only passenger
who sustained fatal injuries, Mar-
cy Rowe said.
The soldier's untimely death
left Rebecca Rowe, his wife of
two years, without a husband and
his daughter Nevaeh, whom he
had never met, without a father.
Rebecca Rowe was six months
pregnant at the time.
David Rowe said that although
Nevaeh (Heaven spelled back-
ward), 18 months, never saw her
father on the Harley, she jumps on
the bike for a ride each time she
sees it.
"She loves to sit on the bike
with it running and say, 'Vroom,
vroom,'" said Marcy Rowe.
"When I look at her, I sometimes
see him looking back at me."
Mr. Rowe's daughter is a happy
free spirit who inherited his adven-


turous and caring nature.
"He was always cheerful and
optimistic," said Marcy Rowe.
"When he was in Iraq, and he
would see someone feeling down,
he would do whatever he could
to cheer them up. They would
say, 'Sarg., the munchkin bit me
again."'
Mr. Rowe's height of.five feet
five inches earned him the nick-
name "Munchkin" among his fel-
low soldiers.
According to his' mom, the
young sergeant not only pushed
his fellow soldiers to excellence
in any situation, he did everything
"full throttle" in his own life.
Ironically, Full Throttle rraga-
zine featured Mr. Rowe's story and
the bike baring his name and uni-
form in the January 2008 issue.
Writer of the article, the
"Rev'rand" Jim Goodrich, invited
David and Marcy Rowe to the Bike
Builders Invitational after having
seen the motorcycle at New Port
Richey Bikefest 2007. The invi-
tational is a display of 42 motor-
cycles from all. over Mr. Rowe's
home-state of Florida.
"Just looking at the bike was
inspirational," said Mr. Goodrich.
The Harley has a standing invi-
tation to any bike show organized
by Mr. Goodrich since David Rowe
uses the bike to keep his son's
memory alive.
"You can't ask for a better per-
son than that," said Mr. Goodrich.
Although the motorcycle has
won "Judges Choice" along with
other trophies, David Rowe does
not show the bike for competition,
but to make people aware of how
the war is affecting the families of
soldiers and to remind Americans
that "freedom isn't free."


Submitted Photo
Paying tribute to his son, Michael Rowe, David Rowe embedded parts of his uniform, honors
and tags onto this Harley. However, he was careful to maintain the integrity of the uniform
and all the ornaments attached to the bike.

Toure

signed on.
Of course, the fact that his
wife was pregnant with his child
seemed to help in his decision
to take on the television show. A
little extra income doesn't hurt,
he joked, but, mainly,'he's doing
it for his three-month-old son.
Growing up, Toure remembers
how his own father worked ex-
tra hours at his job, and how his
mother was sure to remind him
of this. His father, though, was an
,accountant, and wouldn't see half
of the things that Toure has seen
during his television travels.
It's a far cry from his magazine
work in New York, but, so far, he's
enjoyed himself.
Among other things, he's
danced for strangers at a bur-
lesque show -- "I had to take my
clothes off and dance all sexy" --
and worked ina four-star restau-
rant under intense pressure.
Toure has the power to veto a
particular episode idea, and has
only done so on a few occasions.
He turned down an idea involving
shark diving, since he can't swim,
and opted against participating
in any kind of competitive eating
event.
"I eat three hot dogs and I'm
full," the heretofore fearless 'rock
star' said.
So why was he picked for the
show?
"Part of the reason they want-
ed me for the show is because
I'm not a thrill-seeker," he said. "I
think they were considering other
guys who were thrill-seekers, but
that wouldn't resonate the same
way as'a person like me who, I'm

Even Rick and Lisa Hornsby,
who run the facility, looked the ir-
.regularly perfect portrait of a duo
bound by something that many
couples may never understand.
They seem inseparable.
Is it knowing that once you've
jumped, you're dying (a popular
saying of Rick's)? Is it being able
to do something thrilling every
day that proves to be the stuff?
Who knows what it is, but it's
definitely working in the case of
Sthe Hornsbys.
Relationship counseling at

why these people do what .they
do.
y- The underlying current of the
show is found in Toure's refer-
n, ence to Carpe Diem Seize the
a Day.
In his regular life, he doesn't
is consider himself,too much of
g an adventurer, but some of the
o choices he's made (moving to a
3- strange New York, shooting for
w a position at Rolling Stone) have

e "It's fun. It's liberating," he
said of taking chances. "One of
e the sub-theme of the shows is


living life without fear, just going
there, you know what I mean. If
there's something that you've al-
ways been curious about, do it.
Just dive in and do it, kick the fear
out and do it."
He hopes that his viewers will
draw the same conclusion from
his stunts.
If there is any particular mes-
sage to the show, it may be that
life is too short to live with gloves
firmly over your mouth.

LaBelle resident Mel Karau
cautioned the commissioners
about speculators, who may use
the system for their own ben-
efit. Commissioner Bill Maddox
moved to give County Attorney
Mark Lapp permission to prepare
an ordinance for special permit-
ting, which was seconded by
Commissioner Darrell Harris. The
motion passed, but there will be
a hearing on the proposed ordi-
nance later.

Jackson added.
"We stopped doing obstetrics
at our hospital in 1980 or 1981,"
explained Glenda Wilson, mar-
keting director/foundation direc-
tor at Hendry Regional Medical
Center.
Some residents, however,
who were born after 1981, can
say they were born and raised in
Clewiston.
"I had my son in Clewiston but
he is 27 now," said Helen Wash-
ington of Moore Haven. "I think
not long after that, [the maternity
ward] at Hendry Regional went
away."
She said, "I don't know why
they closed down though. But my
experience was fine."


Airport hangars
Staff concluded that, as per
insurance coverage, the county
is entitled to "like-for-like" re-
construction of hurricane dam-
aged hangars at LaBelle Airport
and Airglades.Airport. Staff con-
cluded that insulation had only
been installed in older hangars;
therefore it could be included in
Hammer Construction's repairs
only to those hangars. Ventila-
tion should be replaced because-
it was previously installed. Light-
ing will be identical to what was
there before the damage. Staff
will replace lighting in one han-
gar in which Hammer used only
similar fixtures. Roll up doors on
end units were improperly placed
originally, so the county must ac-
cept like replacement, Mr. Lapp
said.
Commissioner Maddox noted
that there is a long waiting list for
hangars in LaBelle. If the county
can add more hangars it could be
a source of revenue. County En-
gineer Shane Parker said permis-
sion has been applied for from
Florida Department of Transpor-


A nurse from Hendry Regional
Medical Center comments that
the hospital just does. not have
the staff or the services necessary
to deliver a baby. She adds that
legally though, all patients, preg-
nant or otherwise, become the
responsibility of the hospital once
he or she enters through those
doors.
"We have a pregnant lady here
right now," said the nurse.
The woman's family said they
brought her to Hendry Regional
to see if she was in labor before
making the drive all the way to Ft.
Myers where her primary doctor
is.
Taking that into consideration,
local women should not be wor-
ried that they will not be taken
care of at the hospital.

Ocean Boy
The county is still seeking sat-
isfaction from Ocean Boy, which
leased a facility at Airglades for
shrimp distribution. Most dam'
age left by the company when
it moved out of the building has
been repaired, but the county at-
torney told the board that there
is a disagreement with Ocean
Boy on the extent of roof repairs
and missing walk-in freezer and
cooler units. Mr. Lapp said he will
continue negotiating with Ocean,
Boy.
In other business:
.The board approved an ap-.
plication for a recreational trail
grant from the Department of
Environmental Protection to de-
velop off highway vehicle recre-
ational trails. If the application
is successful, it would require a
$148,000 match from the county.


The board approved application
for the grant. Should the applica-
tion be approved by the state, the
county may accept all or a portion
of the grant, or turn it down en-
tirely if the county does not have
the entire match.
*At the request of Commis-
sioner Harrell, there will be
broader notification of contrac-
tors on county bids.
*The board accepted a dona-
tion of three vehicles to Hendry
County from LeHigh Acres Fire
Control & Rescue District.
*The board set up its annual
Visioning Workshop for April 11-
12.

mission meeting will be at 5 p.m.

driving themselves to the hospital.
Ideally, and logically, they should
call an ambulance instead.
"Women drive themselves a
lot," she said.
"I was born in Okeechobee,"
said Pricilla Spooner of Moore Ha-
ven, "but that hospital has closed
down too."
Ms. Spooner was driven to
Royal Palm Beach to give birth to
her son.
When asked about the future
of Hendry Regional as it relates to
obstetrics, Ms. Wilson had this to
say.
"A start-up program would re-
quire the recruitment of multiple
physician and nursing staff, both
in obstetrical and nursery ser-
vices. [Our CEO] said we would
continue to review this as an op-
tion in future updates to our stra-
tegic plan."
